PG's Chris Burgess is On Location in Nashville, TN, for Summer NAMM '09 where he visits the Cole Clark booth. In this video segment, we get introduced to some of Cole Clark's electric guitar models (recently introduced to the US marketplace), ukuleles (Ukelady) and lap steel models. First off, we see the Guardian - reminiscent of the Strat - that features a Queensland maple body, rock maple neck and a 25.5" scale length. The Culprit series - a T-style body - can feature a bunya, silkwood, qld maple or quandong body and has various pickup configurations - 2 single coils or 2 single coils with a humbucker (coil tap) option. The Ukelady (UL1, UL2, UL3) can feature either a solid blackwood or rosewood body and like their acoustic models, the variations between models resides in the each guitar's aesthetic appointments (binding and abalone fingerboard markings). The first lap steel model featured is the Lap Dog that features a solid bunya body with a Cole Clark Horse Shoe single-coil pickup. The other model seen is the Violap that comes with a hollow body, with an internally carved top and back. This particular model has a Cole Clark proprietary pickups built into the top/saddle and two additional humbuckers in the standard bridge and neck positions for those in need of distorted tones.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
